  7. Cookie Textures Crisp cookies - made from a stiff dough with very little liquid in the batter and a high ratio of sugar Crisp cookies spread more than other cookies in the baking process They dry faster because they are thin

  8. Soft cookies - contain low amounts of fat and sugar and high proportion of liquid, such as egg. Corn syrup is used and retains moisture, providing the soft texture. When done baking, they will have light brown bottom and sides

  9. Chewy - High ratio of eggs, sugar, and liquid, but a small amount of fat. The gluten in the flour must develop during the mixing stage. Gluten provides the stretch and flexibility to the cookie giving it the chewy characteristic.
